Day 157 - Pride in our National Academic Recognitions

Today's post is from Assistant Superintendent of Teaching and Learning, Mark Femrite

As we close out the 2014-2015 school year, there is so much to celebrate about Mound Westonka High School – the students, the staff and the incredible academic and co-curricular opportunities that are available to our student body.

Another way to view our high school’s success is through national recognitions in which our academic performance is measured against other high schools across the nation.

For the 2014-2015 school, I am very proud of our students’ accomplishments. Consider the following:

  • U.S. News & World Report “Best High Schools Silver 2014 Award”. Mound Westonka High School ranked 24th out of Minnesota’s 610 high schools. 
  • The Washington Post’s “America’s Most Challenging High Schools 2014”. Mound Westonka High School ranked 23rd in Minnesota. 
  • 3rd Annual Advance Placement Honor Roll Recognition. Mound Westonka High School earned this recognition for increasing the percentage of students earning scores 3 or higher on AP exams while increasing the number of students taking AP exams.

These national rankings demonstrate Mound Westonka High School's commitment to rigorous academics while working with our students to succeed in their academic pursuits. The high school staff wants to ensure our students are college and career ready and these recognitions affirm our approach and work with increasing student achievement.

Congratulations to the high school student body and staff on these accomplishments. I am proud to stand tall with you as a White Hawk!
